About me

As a qualified psychotherapist registered with the BACP, my approach to counselling is integrative, I utilise a variety of therapeutic techniques and theories which enable a tailored approach for each client. I place the client at the centre of the therapeutic process and like to work collaboratively, to overcome any challenge you may be facing.

I have a keen interest in providing dedicated support for pregnancy-related issues and perinatal mental health. Through empathy and effective coping mechanisms, I am committed to helping you achieve your personal goals.

If you're interested in learning more about my approach or scheduling a session, please feel free to reach out. I am eager to work with you and support you on your journey through counselling.

  • BSc Psychology and Children's Development
  • Post Graduate Diploma level 7 in Counselling (BACP-accredited) 

I have experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds and with a variety of presenting issues, including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family issues, workplace difficulty, bereavement, life-limiting conditions and illnesses.  

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
